About Andy


I am an avid adventurer, conservationist, teacher, and outdoor photographer whose photography celebrates the African landscape and its rich wildlife, people, and culture. My photographic safaris allow my travelers to not only enhance their understanding of photography, lighting, and wildlife, but to develop a life-long admiration for Africa ‘s beauty and culture.

Banana Republic recently used my photographs as the cornerstone of their Urban Safari campaign, and my images were seen in all 750 stores around the globe, as well as in their billboards, catalogs and annual report. I was also the winner of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year in the ‘Wild Places’ category in 2008 and a highly commended in the ‘Creative Visions of Nature’ category in 2007.

I launched Gura Gear in 2008, in an attempt to deliver lightweight camera bags to the market. I was looking for a lightweight camera bag to hold all of my photographic gear, and there was nothing desirable on the market that suited my needs. After spending 2 years with many prototypes, the Gura Gear Kiboko bag was born. More products are now available on the Gura Gear web site.

Workshop Testimonial: Stephen Starkman

Stephen Starkman recently traveled with me and John Paul Caponigro to Namibia, Africa. Stephen was kind of enough to share his exceptional photographs with me, as well as his testimonial. Thanks so much, Stephen!

As a side note, John Paul will be returning to Namibia next year in September 2010 to lead another Namibia landscape workshop. I will be formally announcing the workshop in the coming days, however I have already posted the itinerary online:

Namibia Photographic Workshop with John Paul Caponigro

September 20-30, 2010


"..Andy, I cannot thank you enough for all his hard work putting together our workshop in south and central Namibia. You are a man of exceptional talent and infinite patience (well, almost infinite!). You are also an incredibly talented photographer, as is evident in the pages on your website. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute taking another workshop with Andy. Andy - we all had a blast - and now some exceptional photographs to show for it!"
